Saturn retrograde in Pisces:

Saturn in Pisces has just begun a four-month retrograde tour that extends to November 16. When the taskmaster planet tours retrograde, it is a time to reassess priorities and to put in more effort where required and desired. Better control and better results are a matter of making sure that you step up to the plate for yourself on a consistent basis rather than only at crunch time. To the plus, Saturn retrograde in Pisces aims to clear up confusion and to pinpoint which options are real and most worthwhile. Saturn’s tour through Pisces (2 ½ years) is a work in progress that requires time. In due course all will be revealed or exposed. In the meantime, experience is your best informant. As is typical for this transit, clarity surfaces gradually, through a dissolving or disintegration process. In so doing, Saturn eliminates that which prevents the brewing potential from seeing the light of day. 

In the long run, to deny or repress what is true or inevitable is a futile exercise. What is meant to be, will always find its mark. 

Neptune retrograde in Pisces:

On July 2, Neptune in Pisces (its home sign) begins a five-month retrograde cycle. Over the coming months, this transit can see you questioning your cherished ideals and goals. Is it really in your best interest to seek in the way you have been all this time? If the answer is still yes, is there something you are not doing or can do to enhance potentials? Give yourself time to figure it out. If the truthful answer is no, that the desired attainment is proving itself not to be possible, then this transit calls for you to put the time into letting go and moving on. The rebirth process is not an overnight project. The influence of Saturn in Pisces can be a slow dissolving or disintegration process. Signing onto the same page, both Saturn and Neptune in retrograde through Pisces turn the spotlight attention away from the focus on the outer wrestling match, and onto inner questioning and self-reflection. If you can accept and surrender to the necessary relinquishing process, you will move through a gentler, more fluid transition.  

New Moon in Cancer July 5:

What can you do to make your private time or home life more fulfilling, to deepen bonds, to create better security, and emotional fulfillment? The new moon in Cancer on July 5 puts added attention on self-care and comfort zones (emotional, material, physical). A revisit can be productive, lucrative, or beneficial. 

Drawing from this new moon, the next few weeks sets a backdrop to revive, reconnect, refortify, or to re-establish. Something old or from the past can be reworked and updated (actual or karmic in nature). A revision to plan or budget can be smart, advantageous, and well timed. A review of the past can give you a better feel for where you are at now. 

The new moon in opposition to Ceres retrograde in Capricorn brings even more awareness to the fact of that you cannot rely on the system or formula to work as it once did, or on anyone else but yourself. As the saying goes, if you want to get the job done right, do it yourself. How do you want to see this next part of the journey play out? Take control, hold yourself accountable to yourself. Set your own parameters, rules, and boundaries.

Mercury in Leo (July 2 to 24); Venus in Leo (July 11 to August 4): 

July 2 to 24, Mercury transits Leo. Venus transits Leo from July 11 to August 4. Both transits are good for a lift of confidence and courage. Mercury and Venus put head and heart on the same page. For a few weeks, both express from the same creative center. Happiness, joy, love, enjoyment, pleasure, laughter – these are our basic birthrights. If you relate to any of the items on that list as a missing key, be reminded that the procurement process begins from your own core. If you can shift your inner attention and dialogue, you will automatically shift the vibrational field around you too. The law of attraction (like attracts like) is always sending and receiving signals. A simple pleasure, a single moment of joy, peace, or contentment calls forth another. And so it goes.

Mercury (to July 24), Venus (starting July 11) and the sun in Leo (starting July 22) set a positive backdrop for taking the lead. Power up your light and enjoy the reward. 

While Mercury (to July 24), Venus (starting July 11), and the sun (starting July 22) are in transit through Leo, our heart’s yearning take center stage. (Children do too, inner child included.) Enjoy more, worry less (as best you can). Seize all opportunity to gift yourself to yourself and to those you love. The moments of our lives are fleeting, but the memories they create live on.

Mars in Gemini:

Mars tenants Gemini from July 20 to September 4. This Mars transit sets a mobilizing backdrop for social and physical activity. Expect your mind to stay active too. It is a good transit for quick thinking, spontaneity, and trend setting. Watch for conversations, negotiations, and sales to pick up better speed. You can find yourself busier with errands, involvements, a marketing venture, or planning your next steps. A short trip, project, or interlude, or key person (friend, sibling, neighbour, agent) can stay front and center too. Mars in Gemini launches just the day before a full moon. As such, watch July 20 to 24 for more action/a swifter move-along regarding something that you have been grinding through. 

Full moon in Capricorn, July 21 (29:08 Capricorn)

The full moon on July 21 happens at the very last degree of Capricorn. Have you been on wait, in a holding pattern or persevering as of late? That is about to change. Just past the full moon, you could find yourself or the action hit a faster track. Some things can fall into place quite well. Watch for a fresh solution or insight to get the ball rolling. (Something different, unique, or outside of your usual could do the trick.) Start a conversation, open a door, and see where it leads. An ending is well timed. On a bigger picture scale, you can feel a sense of finality, that a life chapter is completing and that a new one is in the works. Indeed, it is for all of us. A significant transition phase lies ahead. It is one that that will extend from now to next spring’s starting gate. 

Following on the heels of the full moon, the sun enters Leo and Eris in Aries turns retrograde on July 22. Both set a positive backdrop for self-honoring, the prioritizing of self-interests and for making the most of the right here and right now. While this is the best way to play it, it is important to keep an eye on the road ahead. Be forewarned, August delivers the next Mercury retrograde cycle.

Mercury enters Virgo (July 25) – *Note -Mercury retrograde is soon here (Aug 4 -28)

Mercury enters Virgo on July 25. Setting you onto task, attention turns to what is working and what is not, to what is yet unfinished, to necessary clean up, upgrades, and improvements (health included). Pay attention to inklings and warning signals. Mercury retrograde is just around the corner. Here are the dates:

August 4: Mercury retrograde starts: 9:55 pm (4:04 Virgo)

August 14: Mercury retrograde backs into Leo: 5:15 pm

August 28: Mercury retrograde stations direct: 2:13 pm (21:24 Leo)

Sept 8: Mercury enters Virgo (out of post shadow period by Sept 12)

At the end of the month, Mercury will begin to slow down in preparation for its retrograde tour. As the month finishes out, you are wise to put more attention toward details and to health.  

Chiron retrograde in Aries:

Finishing out the month, there is one more transit to report on. Chiron in Aries tours retrograde from July 25 to December 30. If you are attuned to Chiron’s karmic workings, you will feel this transit as raising the stakes, a crossroads awakening, or a calling forth of significance. Weaving into your experiential track through subtle and/or obvious ways, the retrograde cycle is a heating up or stoking the fire influence. It calls the maverick or warrior in you to stand more fully present. The retrograde aims to make you more observant, to make you more objectively aware of this moment along your life’s timeline. You can feel this as a wider gap between your outer experience and your inner process. The intention for this transit is to put you in better in touch with what your soul desires most, namely your liberation from the repeating loop experience that keeps you in a holding pattern, and that does not serve your growth.

Pluto in Aquarius, the Evolutionary Astrology Perspective:

Leaving no stone unturned, Pluto’s transit through Aquarius marks a time of significant and lasting change at all levels of existence. A preview of the future and its mandate is already well in evidence. It is readily witnessed through increasing threats to survival on the planet caused by Mother Nature and by human choices, through innovations in science and technology that serve to accelerate the revolutionising of daily life, and through the growing number of souls that are awakening to a higher level of consciousness. Considering that Pluto correlates to evolution and Aquarius to liberation, the potential for profound inner change and soul growth is at its prime. How can you best ready yourself for the years ahead?
